Have I told you yet that we got a puppy?
Her name is Gidget and she is a golden retriever.
Today I am grateful for her.
I am grateful for a new start with her.
I am grateful for how she has brought new life to our house.
When we decided to give Skye up for adoption, I was so full of fear that we couldn’t raise a dog.
But Gidget has brought healing to us.
She is so full of spunk.
She is friendly and smothers e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. she meets with kisses.
Lately we have been forced to slow down.
Puppies can’t really leave the house and need attention every couple of hours.
And so we have had to stick closer to home.
Don’t get me wrong, I have been super frustrated at times that we can’t take her out and can’t go far.
But as we have been seeking out simplicity, she has taught me that it is ok to be quiet.
And for that I am grateful.
It is not a lesson I learn easily.
But one that I need to learn.
So today I am grateful for this fluffy little face to love.
